Who Am I
I am the essence of Tao,
Expressing itself in form,
I am Pure Consciousness,
I have a body, mind, and emotions,
I am none of those.
Being is my deepest Self,
It is beyond name and form,
It is felt as ever present,
I am ceaseless just like the vastness of the sea,
I am that which is beyond name and form,
I am the Rising Dragon from the deep waters,
The Phoenix re-birthing itself from the ashes,
The Heron caretaker of the departed souls,
The roaring Lion in the wilderness,
The morning Star at the break of dawn,
I am that which is beyond name and form.
From Odyssey of a Healer
by Dr. Mmatheo Motsisi

Editorial Reviews: Odyssey of a Healer
Mail & Guardian: Book Review by Editor, Ms Milisuthando Bongela
Encouraged by the cover art by artist Dineo Seshee Bopape, I bought this book on Amazon Kindle. But after I had read the first few pages, I put it down. A month later, I’ve picked it up again and am engrossed in a true but fantastical story of Motsisi, a doctor and sangoma (diviner) who shares the details of how she came to be the spiritual sage that she is. I was not ready when I picked up the book the first time, in the sense that I wasn’t open to hearing some of what is written in the book. Motsisi reveals aspects of her soul’s journey and approaches the large questions of life in ways that I’m familiar with. The difference is she locates these questions in Africa, writes about them in isiZulu and isiXhosa and Sesotho and English. This is a physical embodiment of the importance of archiving and documenting indigenous knowledge systems for modern Africans.
